Mallory Edens is just 18 years old, but she’s already an overnight Internet sensation.
Edens, the daughter of Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wesley Edens, represented the organization at Tuesday night’s NBA draft lottery, and Twitter immediately exploded with inquiries about the blonde beauty. Edens went from around 200 followers on Twitter to nearly 28,000 after she appeared on ESPN’s broadcast — and she hasn’t even graduated high school yet.
“I was really nervous but really happy to get the second pick,” Edens said, via the Journal Sentinel. “I was extremely nervous, but it was really fun.”
When Wesley Edens brought up the idea of bringing Mallory on stage for the drawing, she didn’t think he was being serious.
“He sort of brought it up in passing one time, and I thought he was joking, and then here I am, so I suppose it wasn’t a joke,” she said.
It seems the Bucks co-owner made an executive decision that no one is arguing with.
